Summary0000548: [Pregame] It is possible to select artifact as start bonus (or receive it as random) even without hero
DescriptionIn H3 this bonus is blocked if you don't have hero at start
In VCMI we can get it in both cases (select or random) with error messages if no hero found.

Not reproducible for me, please attach a test map.

One remark though - VCMI behaves here slightly different from OH3. Artifact may be chosen as bonus if player has one or more starting heroes (or one is generated). [OH3 generally disallowed artifact bonus when player had multiple starting heroes, that seemed to be a bug for me.]

But that shouldn't cause the described behaviour (error message of not founding hero).

I've attached my test map "Building requirements"

This is what I've found:
Leaving bonus as random sometimes will result in giving you artifact as starting without checking presence of hero (= error message "no heroes")

Possibility to select artifact without heroes most possibly was caused by constantly editing map:
1)open scenario selection in VCMI
2)remove starting heroes in map editor
So this part is hardly a bug - checking all maps for changes will be too much IMO

While I tried to reproduce this found a similar one - you can't select resource as starting bonus on some maps (like Arrogance, Brave New World, my test map)

So the bug is only in receiving artifact as random bonus where player starts with no hero?

It works for me - you can select resource after selecting starting town. With random town resource cannot be selected, since VCMI wouldn't know which resource it is. This is consistent with OH3 behaviour.

somewhat joke - but may be as feature anyway
